Today’s review:



Luke Griffin’s review: We are greeted with a soothing atmosphere of a waterfall of snowflakes, as a warm glow lights up a back-stage drummer. This was the gentle introduction to MIDASpaces ‘Codes’ , a group ‘obsessed with all things digital’.  The dance, however, seemed to take second place to the – at times – over-powering sound  & light displays,  and I found it difficult  to read from it  ”man’s evolving relationship to technology”.

More fluid dance movements & better integration of dance with the light projection would have made it more appealing to this (admittedly inexperienced) reviewer.

In three words? Pulsating, edgy, techno
